Paper Angel of Wonder - Memory Box


Good Morning!  Holiday preparations are in full swing here.  I did find a little time to play with some new techniques.   Today my cards background uses one of these.   The card is embellished with a gold matte and shiny Paper Angel(she is so adorable) layered on top of card stock and matte gold card stock cut from the Pinpoint Circle Layers.  For the greeting I stamped the word "Wonder" from the Words to Live By stamp set, in Versamark by Imagine Crafts and embossed it with Imagine Crafts Gold embossing powder.
For this background  I've used Tulip dry fabric dye as a watercolor medium.  It is so much fun to play with and I love how the dye reacts when water is added.  Here I have used black dye only, I wet the sprinkled dye then added some drops of Perfect Pearls Mist "Sunflower Sparkle" for a hint of gold.   I love how the black dye had all of these other colors pop out of it not just black but pink and oranges as well.
